Last week, we saw how attendees of Milan Fashion Week were making the classic trench coat relevant for 2018. With temperatures plummeting across Europe, the industry veterans at Paris Fashion Week opted for some more substantial outerwear on the streets of the french capital.
Whether it’s genuine sheepskin or a synthetic substitute, shaggy sherpa fabrics have become one of the most popular winter style moves of recent seasons, and Paris’s fashion week experts proved just how flexible and cozy the fabric can look.
Here’s the stylish attendees of Paris Fashion Week wore their sherpa jackets this season.
